"Boy Meets World" was an instant classic in the early '90s on ABC. It was such a hit that they decided to create a spinoff series called "Girl Meets World" over twenty years later. Though the spinoff only lasted three years it was still a heartfelt hit on the Disney Channel. Let's catch up and see what the cast is up to today.
Ben Savage, Then
Ben Savage played the original 'boy' in "Boy Meets World," Cory Matthews. In "Girl Meets World" he continued his run as Cory, who was now father to Riley and Auggie Matthews. He appeared in a few movies and shows and has been acting on and off since "Boy Meets World," but "Girl Meets World" was his first mainstream, popular role in some time and fans were excited to see him back on the silver screen!
Ben Savage, Now
Since "Girl Meets World," Savage has appeared the show "Still the King" playing the role of Gene in 2017. Although he hasn't had too many other high profile acting roles, he keeps fans excited through social media and attending tons of conventions and other events with his "Girl Meets World" cast mates.

Danielle Fishel is also one of the cast members from the original show "Boy Meets World," where she played the role of Topanga Lawrence. Fishel reprised her role as Topanga in "Girl Meets World" now portraying a mother of two. In between shows, she primarily was a host on the show "The Dish" which was essentially an entertainment news talk show.

Since the show ended in 2017, Fishel hasn't done much acting, instead jumping into the world of beauty!

She also just gave birth to her first child in July 2019, welcoming a son with her husband Jensen Karp.

Corey Fogelmanis, Then

Amir Mitchell-Townes, Now
Since the show ended back in 2017, Mitchell-Townes has not really continued acting. You can soon see him in a movie titled "Puzzled" which is currently in post-production, but his main focus right now is music. His rap pseudonym is Uhmeer and he was featured on his friend and fellow "Girl Meets World" alum, Sabrina Carpenter's song "Hold Tight" in 2018. It makes sense that he would want to focus on his music career, after all, his dad is DJ Jazzy Jeff. So, musical talent must run in the family!
